Our No Win No Fee Allergy Compensation solicitors discuss the severity of food allergy compensation claims, and how our solicitors can help you make a compensation claim.
Food allergies can lead to severe health implications, including fatal consequences. This blog explores the prevalence of deaths and serious injuries resulting from food allergies in the UK. 

Understanding the Severity of Food Allergies 

Food allergies are a growing public health concern. Food hypersensitivity is responsible for more hospitalisations each year than foodborne disease. The total number of days spent in hospital each year, however, is greater for foodborne disease. In developed countries, there is evidence that food allergy and intolerance is on the rise, and poses a significant problem. On average, 2 children per school class will have a food allergy and on average 10 people each year die in England and Wales as a result of having a food allergy. 
They can lead to serious conditions like anaphylaxis, a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction.

The Rising Incidence of Food Allergies 

Research shows an increasing trend in food allergies in the UK. This rise calls for greater awareness and precautionary measures in food handling and labelling. 

The Impact of Mislabelled Food 

Natasha’s Law is named after Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, who tragically passed away after suffering from a severe allergic reaction in 2016. Before boarding a flight at Heathrow airport, Natasha purchased a baguette with sesame seeds baked into the bread, which is one of her allergies. Unfortunately, due to a loophole, sesame hadn’t been declared on the label. Natasha was unaware of this and experienced a fatal anaphylactic reaction on her plane. Cases of severe allergic reactions often stem from mislabelled or improperly disclosed ingredients. These incidents highlight the critical importance of accurate food labelling. 
While exact numbers fluctuate annually, studies indicate that hospital admissions for food-induced anaphylaxis have increased in the UK. However, it's important to note that deaths due to food-induced anaphylaxis, though tragic, remain relatively rare.
